My blu ray and regular DVD player have sound coming through the tv, but the tv itself on a regular chanel like ESPN, there is no sound. This is a Mitsubishi 73" DLP.


You have completed the proper troubleshooting, and by process of elimination you have determined that there is nothing wrong with your television's sound. The problem lies in cable. The next troubleshooting steps depend upon how you receive your cable channels. If you have a cable box (or a satellite receiver) you may just need to unplug it for 30 seconds to reboot it (or follow the instructions from a cable/satellite company representative on how to properly reboot your particular cable box/satellite receiver model). Also commonly the cable box/satellite receiver is not set to output audio properly. If you are connecting it to the television with an hdmi cable the audio output must be set to hdmi. Also there may be a setting pcm or bitstream. The cable box audio setting normally would have to be changed to pcm.The problem may be with the cable box/satellite receiver itself needing to be replaced or the cable cord connecting it to the television may need to be replaced. It is less likely that the television has a setting the one source input the cable box/satellite receiver is connected to that would affect the sound but confirm that there is or isn't. Last there may be something wrong with the source input you have the cable box/satellite tv receiver connected to.

If you do not have a cable box/satellite tv receiver then rescan your channels, try a different cable cord, and check with the cable company to make sure there is no internal issue at the moment.

12 inch black square in center of the viewing screen when I turn tv on or switch stations


The black square is a text box for the deaf. You can turn it on and off with the closed captioning button on your remote or from the closed captioning section in your television's menu.

However if you are connecting a cable box or satellite tv receiver you would need to turn the text box off from its menu. There is often a hidden menu that needs to be accessed on the cable boxes and satellite tv receivers that can be reached by turning it off and then immediately pressing the menu button on the outside of it. For more details about a specific cable box or satellite tv receiver call your cable or satellite company.

Dont know how to get the words to stop comming up when they talk captins on


If you have a cable box or satellite tv receiver connected to this television, and you are using the cable company/satellite tv company remote control the captions are not coming from your television. They are not controlled by your television or your television's remote. There is usually a hidden menu where captions can be enabled and disabled. You reach it by turning off your cable box and then immediately pressing the menu button. If your cable box/satellite tv receiver does not work this way the company can troubleshoot/walk you through removing the captions. If they cannot request to speak to a supervisor.

If this does not apply to you because you don't have a cable box or satellite tv receiver then there is usually a closed caption button on your remote control even if it is under a hidden fla or there is a closed caption option in the television's setup menu that can also be accessed with the television's remote control.

When the cable company offers you digital cable, you typically need a cable box to unscramble the digital channels. Therefore you need to connect either a coaxial cable from the cable box's RF output, if it has one, or connect 3 RCA cables from the yellow, white and red jacks on the rear panel of the cable box to the TV. Analog channels only (if available) will go straight thru over the coaxial RF hookup. They are not scrambled. Select the proper input source on the TV for the cable box.

I am using cable, no box, I want to program in the channels. The channels 1 thru 22 are already programmed but I want to add 23 thru 79 channels I can't figure it out.


The TV might have an auto programing function, which should tune in all available channels that are being delivered thru the cable/from the cable company.

There is no real way to get satellite signals into your PC. There are many companies on the net that are selling software that supposedly does this and they are all a scam. Getting cable is easy because your cable connects to the TV tuner card you installed and then converts this into the various channels. Satellite tuners work completely different.

Each DVR or box that allows you to access anything other than broadcast analog signals (channels 1 thru 100) has to be registered with your cable company. The box has an internal device number similar to the MAC address a wireless PC card might use to connect to a WiFi network. If that number is not registered as a box allowed to be on your account, then it will do nothing at all other than display those numbers you refer to. This is done to prevent you from buying a cable box from somewhere else, instead of renting the one from the cable company. The cable company looses that "rental" money if they allow this. You may be able to contact your cable company to see if they can add that box, and will ask you for numbers on the bottom or back of the box. You may also be required to pay an additional HD charge to have a 2nd HD box in your home, even if you own the box.

The bottom line is to contact the cable company, let them know what you have, and ask what is possible.

Lost Satellite reception


If its raining, that will cause you to lose satellite reception.

If that is not the problem, then do this: turn off TV & satellite. Wait 5 minutes. Power back on. Most of time this will fix it by itself.

If neither of those do it, unattach your satellite cable from back of satellite box. Power everything off. Wait 5 minutes. Now reattach your satellite cable. Power everything on. It should search for you sat and find it. Let me know if this works.

If none of those work, then I would call the sat company for help.

Is this a digital television? will i need a digital box with my television in 2009 ?


The "DTV ANSWERS" website says that any TV made since 2004, has a built-in digital tuner and will not require a digital converter box. If you currently receive your TV signals from your cable, satellite, or phone company, you won't need a converter box, even if you have an older non-digital TV. Only people with TVs made before 2004, will need to purchase a converter box, if they don't use TV signals from cable, satellite, or phone companies.
You might want to visit the RCA website, to see if they have a phone number to call, for any additional questions.

Unusable signal


Usually need a second receiver. Cannot just split signal. With some cable providers you can split the cable before it hits the cable box for basic cable channels.

Suggest contacting Cable Company if does not work.

Thanks!
